Trispark electronic ignition for sale. I bought this from CBS and they refuse to take it back and refund.

Reason for selling besides above

1. If you have a Triumph twin with two 12 volt coils you will need to change the coils to 6 volt coils. There was no information about this and I do not want to buy 6 volt coils.
2, If you go to the misleading Trispark website the video sugarcoats an easy installation...well I guess if you buy the 6 volt coils then the sparkplug with resistor then the install is easy. Again nowhere about twins having to change to 6 volt coils.

Yep, this is the reason I will not buy anything from CBS ever again.

Make offer, I bought new for about 275$ and feel cheated. I wouldn't cheat you like this so that is why I am telling you that you need 6 volt coils or one duel 12 volt coil. I don't know why they are made like this and THIS INFO is not put out there. Maybe you need to time warp into 1970 and ask your Triumph mechanic about it before you consider buying.

Splash---if and when you get into a new interest or hobby then you have to do your home work.
You have to spend time reading about it and around it and spend time reading web sites and discussion boards such as this.
You should find other people who are into the same hobby and ask questions.
Also ask questions on boards such as these.
None of us know all of the answers but by careful research and asking questions you can learn a lot.
Then and only then do you decide what actions to take.
And then before implementing them you check out your proposed actions with someone more knowledgeable than yourself or on a board such as this.

Blundering into a course of action and then getting it wrong is no ones fault but yours.
Don't blame the supplier---be a man and put the blame where it belongs--fairly and squarely on Splashs shoulders!

Splash, you are out of line. Sounds more like you simply changed your mind, and want to rant. We all rant at times.
Take responsibility for not doing your home work. The 6 volt coils (not big $) you mention have also been recommended on other IE for years, so this is not new unknown information. If that’s the headache, as repeated several times, it seems a misdirected issue.
